We were asked to make a custom Netty for a 5-year-old by another forum member. Never in my life did I expect to find a hammock "cute"... It's 8 feet long and 48 inches wide, made of Brown ARGON 1.6. See for yourself!

That's great! I made a quickie hammock for my 7yr old son out of a curtain. He sleeps in that instead of his bed every night... in fact, he's asleep in it now, with my jarbidge under it.

Really nice job on that. I may just have to get you to make one for him. I think he'd love it!

What was the cost, if you don't mind me asking?

I responded to GoatHanger privately with a quote. Anyone else who is interested, please contact us at [email protected]! I try to avoid listing pricing for custom work here, because all requests/circumstances are different. For example, this particular hammock did not include a suspension, which dropped the price a bit.

You're quite welcome! I will advise a bit of caution the first time he uses it. We generally give every hammock we make a test run. If we messed up somewhere, I'd rather one of us lands on our butts. But, it simply wasn't possible with such a small hammock. I'm 6' 3", that would've been quite a sight...

We considered recruiting a neighborhood 5-year-old, but decided walking around saying "hey, wanna come try out my hammock?" to small children might land us in jail for the night.

He hangs full time in his bedroom, so we have a safe place to try it out.

Indeed you did, and it looks like I'm on my way to the fifth purchased hammock at my house. Geez... I didn't know what I was getting into when I started hanging :scared:

.....wouldn't change a thing.

That's awesome! My son hangs full time at my house too. Kids are cool :shades:


EDIT: It's official. I'm order #00168. My son is going to have a happy birthday! Thanks meckelangelo!

Hammock got here today. It looks great! I think it should fit him for at least 4-5 years. Excellant workmanship and attention to detail, quick turn around, and on a custom size! Test hang in his bedroom tonight.

When I was a kid my parents got me and my brother these tents that were made to go over our beds and I remember thinking how cool those were but this is even better. Nice work!

Hey GoatHanger, here's a few pictures of yours! It's the first one to get our new labels on, also. :)

My 5' 8" wife gave it a bit of a test. How do normal sized people sleep in 9' hammocks?!?!?!

That looks incredible! The look on your wife's face is priceless [emoji51]

Those labels are a nice touch, very professional. My son is going to love this. His birthday is on the 13th, so I'll update the thread with pics of the happy camper when we get back from our trip.

Thank you, Sir!

You can tell it's a winner just by looking at his face. Priceless!!!!!!! :thumbup:

I received the netty today, and couldn't wait until next weekend to post. I am very impressed with this hammock. It is a quality product, from a really nice family business. I couldn't be more pleased.

I'll post again after my son's birthday, but here it is in all its glory now.

Thanks again to the Meck family at Hammeck.

If anyone is considering a hammock from them, you will not be disappointed. Do it.

Wow, I like the look of those! Nice work. Imagine being a 5 yr old sleeping in a hammock full time. He's getting started young!

Cool stuff! This is making me want to join the Hammeck family, though I just ordered a Dutch Argon hammock. Maybe I'll pick one up in the Raffle next weekend at MAHHA.
